Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Place the pepper, courgette and red onion on a large non-stick baking tray and drizzle with 1 tsp olive oil. Season well and toss to combine. Roast in the oven for 20 mins until soft and beginning to brown. Set aside.
  2. Heat the grill to medium. Season the flour well and, in a large bowl, mix with the remaining oil and 4-5 tbsp water to form a soft dough. Knead briefly, then roll out on a floured surface to a rough 20cm circle. Transfer the dough to a large ovenproof, nonstick frying pan and fry over a medium heat for 5 mins, until the underside begins to brown. Turn over and cook for a further 5 mins. Spread the tomato sauce over the base, scatter with the roasted veg, then sprinkle with cheddar. Grill the pizza for 3-4 mins until cheese has melted. Serve immediately, sliced into wedges, with a large green salad.

Was easy to make and ingredients are all to hand but it wasnt all that great. The base was strange for a pizza, far too brittle and as someone else said - more like a quiche! Would not make again as there are so many other better recipes on this site with not much more effort required. (We did eat it all though so not a complete disaster!)

My 15 yr old daughter and her friend just made themselves this for dinner - easy easy easy!!

I made the tom-base-sauce for them and they did the rest, it did need a llittle more water/oil than stated but the end result was delicious-so they told me as there wasn't any left for me to try!!!

I'm going to make this again for me and my little ones - no teens alowed!

This recipe was delicious and filling, we shared it between two of us and although it left us full we felt it probably would have struggled to serve four people (we might just be greedy though). We struggled a little with the base and found it required more water/oil but that may have just been our inexperience at cooking. Overall a really nice meal that leaves a comfortable and satisfied stomach.

Noted the previous comments so I made the dough with less flour than the recipe asked for, a little more oil and a little more water and was still able to roll out the dough quite thinly. It just might be my kitchen equipment, but I needed slightly longer cooking times for both the dough and the roast vegetables.
Also used a mixture of 50g gruyere and 50g cheddar cheese because we love cheese but I guess you lose the "low fat " aspect of the original recipe!
Pizza came out perfectly,none left on my family's plates, but was just enough for 3 people. Will definitely make again-a great base recipe which lends itself to individual tweaking.

I tried this last night and the result was delicious however, I did find that I couldn't get the dough base to work and as I'd never made dough before (I'm a novice cook) it required rescuing by my partner who added a few tbsp more of oil and water to make it work.

I expect an experienced cook would make the base from their head rather than following the recipe to the letter but I'd recommend adding more than the recipe states.

Sorry, now I forgot the rating! The bases was lovely and light, although I made it much thinner than it seemed in the picture, and just made several in a smaller pan.

Can I just say that surely if you didn't make this recipe, you can't give it one stars just because it 'doesn't look nice so the kids won't eat it?' I don't have any objections to leaving a comment like that, just don't rate the recipe at the same time!

Personally, I found it extremly delicious, although vegetables like the ones shown are my favourite pizza topping anyway.

Really easy to make and tastes good too. Surprised how good the base came out. Next time will add other veg.

I think the dough is too thick, would definitely make it thinner next time.

Really delicious!
I especially enjoyed making it because you can do every part of it from basic ingredients :-) Yum!

It seemed to be more of a quiche base than a pizza dough but tasty all the same.

Def need more than a quarter - I ate at least half..... For us dieters (or occasional dieters) it does the trick nicely but my meat eating dairy loving husband thought it was well.... lets just say he popped out to the chippy. . .

So a quarter of the pizza is 331 calories? Is a quarter enough for dinner?

Replaced courgette ( which we all dislike) with chorizo sausage and pepperoni, which makes it a bit less healthy and low fat! Everyone liked this and requested I make it again, and its so easy.

Tasty quick, and easy! Excellent student food, esp before a night out. Better than takeout!
